Joaquin Phoenix has joined the indigenous Yawanawa people of the Brazilian Amazon as part of a new series with MTV Canada called 4REAL. The activist actor, who also is executive producer of the program, hopes to call attention to global social issues and foster cultural awareness and understanding of different societies. I’m not certain, but I also believe Phoenix will be penning an article for Vanity Fair on the plight of those living in the Rainforests. The above pictures come from a new edition of the Italian Vanity Fair.
Supposedly, Joaquin’s experience in Brazil will air tonight on MTV Canada. It should be available tomorrow online at MTV THINK. Also taking part in these specials are celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Eva Mendes, Casey Affleck, and Mos Def. We’ll keep you posted.
